Whether they impede the future actions of an individual can only be proved after those actions take place.


How can we prove if their actions were wrong/unconstitutional if we do not know whom they are tied to?

That's the main point here.

If you have some proof of wrongdoing that the FBI, CIA, etc. don't have...lets see your proof. Otherwise, it is typically called a PARTISAN WITCH HUNT.


That does not address what I said.

Yeah...you did. There is nothing to investigate...Trump is the most transparent President (so far) ever especially with his tweeting...Obama was the least (while claiming to be the most) and you only want to investigate made-up illegal Russian ties for people you don't personally like.

If Trump were black, most would call you racist. So I guess you're just prejudice and a hater.

No you loss your ability to make that argument when you accused Trump supporters of voting for him because the wall chant and he has an attractive wife.


I can make any argument I damn well please. Trump's supporters made their case a long time ago and it was not based on intelligent governance or quality of ideas. It was based on propaganda mantra and superficial bull#.



You don't then get to complain what other people may think about those who voted for other candidates.


I get to say whatever I like.



And funny, the only mainstream people I ever here complaining about the other sides voters are the tolerant people like Hillary, you called half of Trump supporters deplorable. Don't remember Trump attacking Hillary voters.


I did not call them deplorable. Deplorable is too nice.

I'd say stupid.

Yeah, I know:

Obama paid 19% in 2014
Bernie Sanders paid 13% in 2014

Trump paid 25% in 2005


But but but....

Bernie and Obama probably live in shacks, spending their every last penny supporting refuggeee children and helping people get health care, so they can't afford any more in taxes.

Now Trump paying around 25% he needs to pay more or else he hates kids and wants everypone to die without healthcare.

Why can't you see the difference?


And don't forget this zinger from Hillary....


"We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt."

Baaaahahahaahahaahaa!

While the tax returns were legit.

It amounted to a whole lot of nothing.

Very weak if you ask me.

You know after this the more ideologically-driven and fanatical of Trump's detractors will still say he's an idiot and has no clue what he's doing.

Even after he pulled off this masterful Machiavellian scheme.

I notice they've made themselves scarce from this thread after the first few pages. I wonder why? It seems to be a regular occurrence.

Trump won because Hilary was a snake that screwed Bernie over(Bernie would have annihilated trump)


Says a Bernie supporter.

I might have voted for him if he'd run as the Independent he always was.

Hillary was the Dem candidate - - not Bernie.

Honestly... The guy's name is UKTruth THEY'RE NOT EVEN AMERICAN!


Ok. Nothing I said insinuates otherwise.


Perhaps you should re-read your own post?

[B]UKTruth:[/B] if you say so... I think they were normal Americans who wanted change and didn't care about tax returns from a billionaire real estate developer. I know many of them.

introvert: Normal American's also voted for other candidates. That's the problem. You think people other than those who think like you are abnormal.

UKTruth didn't vote for trump... because he's not American, like you insinuated....

Why are you even arguing this point?

Oh right... I forgot... Because you're here to pick fights.

There's a difference from debating, and randomly going off about every thing for no apparent reason, despite clearly producing an error of your own.

If they have committed a crime like Obama smoking pot? If they have ties to dangerous people like Bill Aires as Obama did? Or maybe if they were born in this country? What level of investigation without cause or proof is acceptable and warranted.


Obama's ties to people like Aires was investigated and discussed. It was out in the open for all to see.

Trump does not want his financial ties out in the open, which should cause us to be a bit more concerned.



Do you simply think that because you personally think Trump may have done something wrong in the past, with no evidence what-so-ever that you have a right to have that investigated?


No.

The sweet taste of Failure....

www.huffingtonpost.com...




Mitt Romney’s Tax Returns Were More Outrageous Than Trump’s Partial One
This was not worth freaking out about.

But there appears nothing damaging or scandalous in the tax documents. Johnston’s find shows that Trump paid a 25.3-percent effective federal income tax rate that year. The formal top tax rate for the wealthiest Americans then was 36 percent. Trump appears to have secured his lower rate by taking legal tax deductions.

Other wealthy people have been far more effective at dodging liabilities to Uncle Sam. In 2012, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney revealed that he paid an effective tax rate of 14.1 percent in 2011, much lower than the rate Trump paid on his 2005 return.

There may be more than one scandal buried in the thousands of pages of tax returns Trump and his family businesses have filed over the years. But his income and tax rate from 2005 are not among them.

Unfortunately for the Dems.
Hey, I have a great idea... maybe the Dems could run Rachael Maddow next time!? She'd be great

What was Maddow thinking?
I mean, surely she read the 2 pages and understood it proved nothing... so why did she make a big deal out of it?

I understand msnbc wanted to break the story and be the first but, at what cost?

total loss of reputation now, the left just helped Trump...

Trump or someone from his camp provided those 2 pages, the only concern I have is that they didnt leak something more recent meaning there potentially is something wrong with them.

I think it is clear what you are saying. You are worried about conflicts of interest and don't trust the IC and Congress to investigate, so you would prefer people like Rachael Maddow to take charge.
Sounds like a plan


Screw Maddow.

I want Trump to be honest and be open to true transparency.

That is one of the gripes we had with Obama, so why should we expect less from Trump?

Unless transparency is dependent upon political affiliation.

25%


That is all. No go home all you whiners and let the government start to work as intended. It is like seeing an ex with someone who is actually ok but not wanting to admit it until EVERYONE around you is like....c'mon!!!!

Next, she and the source should be prosecuted.
